    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Habitat for Humanity in August 2015.

    Interview

    Went back for a second interview with Manager and Director, as well as board president. Interview was 20+minutes. Many questions regarding interacting with volunteers and prior employees, coming in as a new (and younger) assistant manager. Overall, good (but nerve-wracking) experience.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Habitat for Humanity (Austin, TX) in July 2015.

    Interview

    We went and had coffee, discussed the role and whether or not I was a fit for it. It was determined that I was and now I sit here at my desk typing this. I really don't have much to say but I have to hit a 30 word min. It was very informal, as are most interviews in real estate development.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Habitat for Humanity.

    Interview

    There was a Phone call first that latest about 5 minutes. I was then asked to a face to face meeting with the senior director. The interview was not at all what I expected. I had worked with habitat before as a volunteer and i felt like they were unprepared for me. They asked me very basic questions. Nothing specific to my past experiences or how I could fit this position. I was not impressed.
